Case in point, as the COVID-19 pandemic began to drastically impact the municipal bond market, HilltopSecurities aimed to provide context and insight to its clients. With the markets and legislation rapidly changing, HilltopSecurities began providing consistent commentary daily.

The Point Group capitalized on this as an opportunity to further grow the company as a thought leader on the municipal bond market and rapidly increase the firm’s national exposure.In short, our PR team was able to leverage media relationships and forge new relationships to secure coverage in major national newspapers like The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal.
